When @elleusa asked me to be part of their Hijabi vloggers editorial feature it was an immensely exciting opportunity for me to help show that the Hijab is finally being recognised across mainstream media. I feel this is only the beginning of greater things yet to come for Muslim women worldwide. It's an opportunity to show that we are not oppressed as others may be mislead to believe. But we are pioneers, entrepreneurs, educated professionals in our own right. We are leaders and we are here to inspire and pave the way for generations to come that Hijab shouldn't hinder your progress in what you aspire to be. I want to use my public profile to do good and to show others that you can reach what you set out to achieve and for that I am immensely grateful for how far we have come and excited for how far we have yet to look forward to. Thank you for joining me in my journey and watch out for the vlog of this shoot coming to my YouTube channel in the next few days.

You all ask me how I'm able to juggle motherhood/business/wife/homemaker, I'll share part of the answer here and the rest in a blog post in the near future. All my life I have accumulated things and given them meaning in my life, it made me feel that these items are a part of me, who I am, my personality and who I hope to become in the future and that without them I will be less of myself. But one day I received the most precious item of all, an item which put all other items in to perspective. That item was my son Saami or @sensiblesaami as I like to call him. With his arrival came chaos and disorder and my world was literally turned upside down. He took up so much of my time that I no longer paid attention to the items around me, they became insignificant, yet they still took up space in my home. I had no time for them, and they had no time for me, they didn't serve me, but they sat there longing to be touched or observed. With my limited time how was I going to achieve my dreams and aspirations? How was I going to see the world and enjoy its fruits. I have no time? So I began working on a system, a system to live by. A way of life, a system that wasn't going to interrupt me or distract me. I needed less stuff. With less stuff, i have less to put away, less to wash and less to clean. My system of less started with my makeup stash. As a freelance makeup artist I had boxes full of makeup of all shapes and sizes, lotions and potions of all colors and textures. So I created my first system, my @AOMcosmetics Palette system. All the products I truly needed, only the colours I needed and nothing more. Less is more I reminded myself, less things to pack in my makeup kit, less brushes to clean at the end of the day, less wastage of unused products and more time to play with my kids. So next time you wonder how I manage to do so much, remember I have less decisions to make, less washing to do, less clothes to iron and not because I have more time than you, but because of the way I choose to spend my time. My system is always adapting and becoming more refined by the day, it's dynamic and grows as I do. I hope this short story was helpful for you? Want more? Hit
